About our cover: Soccer Cub Scouts from across the country, like these in Donna, Tex., from the Rio Grande Council, are getting a kick out of "Soccer and Scouting," a new program that combines the positive activities and values of Cub Scouting with organized soccer. Associate Editor Kathy Vilim DaGroomes tells how soccer is reaching youth traditionally underserved by Scouting, especially the growing Hispanic-American/Latino population.
